Overview

Excerpt from Sketches of the Civil and Military Services of William Henry Harrison

In the preparation of this work the authors have been much aided by Colonel M'Aflee's excellent History of the Late War - by Mr. Dawson's Historical Narrative, which embraces many valuable and authentic documents - and by Judge Hall's elegant Memoir of the Public Services of General Harrison. Several other historical and biographical narratives have been consulted; and, in addition to these sources of information, the authors have had the benefit of original letters and documents not heretofore embraced in any similar publication. They have also been favored with the personal recollections of several officers of the late war, who participated with honor in the north-western campaigns. Finally, they themselves happen to have a personal knowledge of many of the scenes and incidents which they have undertaken to describe.

Under these circumstances, whatever may be thought of the literature of the work, they venture to claim for it, at least, the merit of authenticity in every substantial particular. Running, as it does, through a period of nearly fifty years, in the history of the West, it will be found to embrace a variety of matter valuable to the general reader, independently of its immediate relation to the distinguished citizen whose remarkable public career has been briefly portrayed in its page.
